Former UK guard Devin Booker was on fire in the NBA restart, leading the Phoenix Suns to an 8-0 bubble record and just barely missing the playoffs.
After finishing with 30.5 points per game in the seeding matchups, the all star was named to the NBA All-Seeding Games First Team. He joined Damian Lillard, TJ Warren, Luka Doncic and James Harden as the players who earned the honor.

Phoenix just fell short of making the play-in game in the Western Conference, but Booker showed he is indeed a rising star in the league. If not for Damian Lillard scoring 40+ points in three straight games, he might have been the MVP for the restart.
The best play Booker made in the bubble has to be the game-winning shot against the LA Clippers:

The Suns guard definitely deserved to be on the first team, and will for sure have a lot more eyes on him going into next season.
